Are you using Googles reCAPTCHA on your website? Now is the time to stop. theintercept.com/2018/03/06/go

Is there a great FLOSS alternative for this type of thing? Please let me know!

@forteller

the keyword "reCAPTCHA" does not appear in the article even once and reCAPTCHA does not even help with AI research, it just looks for a mouse movement event

the actual approach to not supporting google involves not using *any* of their services

this means you should throw any android phone you have in the trash and not use gmail or chrome or any other google software or service

I don't think it's accurate to say that reCAPTCHA doesn't help with AI research.

"reCAPTCHA offers more than just spam protection. Every time our CAPTCHAs are solved, that human effort helps digitize text, annotate images, and build machine learning datasets. This in turn helps preserve books, improve maps, and solve hard AI problems."
